1996toyota Camry, 5-speed manual trans, problem #1, there is an odd grinding noise coming from the engine compartment, took vehicle to dealer, said it was transaxle but that the problem couldn't be pinpointed until they took it apart. Took the vehicle to a tranmission place for second opinion and was told that there was no problem at all. I had the clutch replaced and the noise went away for a day or two but came back. I have no idea what this noise could be.

After purchasing car I had to replace brakes after 3 months, then told rotors were warped, now rear axle is faulty and calipers need to be replaced along with rotors/drums and brakes again. Continual problems with front end shaking. This is true of both sides, left and right front.
